I have run punkbuster installations over and over again, but pnkbstrb.exe will not install and it is not showing up in services so i'm getting kicked for pnkbstrb heartbeat stopped.
I also run the pbsvc.exe file to fix punkbuster, but still no pnkbstrb in services.

Can anybody please help me to fix this ?

Ps: I'm using Vista.

Are you running it as an administrator? (p4f)

I'm running firefox as admin, bfp4fr.exe as admin, pnkbstra and pnkbstrb in system32 as admin, still the same.
Pnkbstra is showing in controlpanel/admin tools/services, but not pnkbstrb.

Pbsetup does not contain bfp4free ?

Aaah yes Big Grin

I tried this 2 weeks ago, but bfp4free was not there then.

Ok, i installed this and updated the bfp4free punkbuster to client version (V2.244 | A1377) and server version (V1.794 | A1377 | C2.244).
I will try the game now and add a reply here soon !!!

Stay tuned !! Big Grin

Windows firewall is always off, kaspersky internet security turned off.

Malwarebytes antimalware turned off.


I have played 4 other battlefield games and never had any problems, with bfp4free i have this problem all the time ?

What you need to do is: Computer>LocalDisk>ProgramFiles(x86)>EA Games>Battlefield Play4Free>pbsvc_p4f.
From here uninstall it, log off, log in again and install it again. Reply me the feedback hope it works Big Grin
